I mentioned in our November newsletter a couple of weeks ago that Sara and I just absolutely loved a submission that came our way, offered rep, but alas the author went with another agent (as there were many agents interested).
I heard today that the project sold at auction for some money–with tons of houses bidding on it.
Ack. Hate that. But you know what? We tried for it; we were in the game. We loved it. Obviously lots of people agreed.
And for all of you, this is good news. This means Publishers are willing to step up to the plate for projects—something I was rather worried about as of late.
But truthfully, I wish editors hadn’t told me about it. Ignorance can be bliss…
